Two Tramps In Mud Time By Robert Frost

“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.

You know how it is with an April day.

When the sun is out and the wind is still,

You’re one month on in the middle of May.

But if you so much as dare to speak,

a cloud come over the sunlit arch,

And wind comes off a frozen peak,

And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss

Image


Sunset is a time when the sun kisses the horizon and the time when he gives a kiss goodbye to the daytime. Enough for today.

Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight,

Red sky in morning, shepherd’s warning.

This week theme of Weekly Photo Challenge is Movement and here my entry for this week:

I was taking pictures of the sunset when my friends asked me to take their photograph. I moved the camera away from the sunset before it finished completely because my friends asked me to be hurry.

‘Moving’ Sunset

This picture below I took it by accident. I was new to the camera and set the exposure time for 10 seconds by mistake. I was moving at that time. Here its result:

Anyway movement in photography is not always about blurring or unfocused. Movement can also be seen…

I took this photograph of the sun a week ago on my way back home. The sun was CLOSE to disappear due to sunset. I kept taking the photographs from inside my friend’s car while he was driving it.

 My Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

These objects, the ladybirds and the flies, which I don’t know the name and type of those flies, were very CLOSE to me when I was busy shooting the wild flowers in a country park. They were close to me and they were very close to each other in terms of distance.

This week the new theme of Weekly Photo Challenge is Blue.

I like the blue colour of the nature. So this time my entry for the blue theme is about the blue colour in nature and its gradation.

My Blurry Red Sunset

Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight

Red sky in morning, fisherman’s warning

My blurry red sunset

That phrase I heard it first time from one of my English friend few years back. We were sitting inside the Subway while eating our food when the sun was going down. The panorama of the sky was just simply beautiful! Red sky and the big circle of the sun. I just couldn’t stop staring at it. Unfortunately I missed taking picture of the red sunset at that time since my friend took me long way to the beach and by the time we arrived there the sun was gone already. Gutted!

 My blurry red sunset

Last year on April another friend of mine took me somewhere for a weekend and on our way back home we saw the same panorama of the sky, the red sunset. We were on a motorway on that time and I insisted my friend to park anywhere possible because I wanted to take some pictures. It was a battling process, LOL, because it’s not easy to get a parking space while the sun sank slowly at the horizon. Finally we got a space and I just jumped out of the car straight away. I think it was quite cold at the time as far as I could remember and I had no gloves put on because I was in hurry. My hands started freezing and felt numb but I just kept going taking pictures. That is one reason why the pictures came out blurry. The other reason was I had no tripod and still lack of technique. The only thing I could think about on that time was just try to shoot the big circle of the red sunset. I used my Samsung Digimax A7.

To improve the quality of my blurry red sunset images then I used Picassa by applied the auto contrast, increased the shadow (tuning), and then soften it.
